Refrigerated crescent dinner rolls unite as a quick crust to hold ground beef, cheese, salsa and seasoning in this easy-to-assemble main dish.


  • 1 can (8 ounces) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 1 pound lean (at least 80 percent) ground beef
  • 3/4 cup Old El Paso® Thick 'n Chunky salsa
  • 2 tablespoons Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix (from 1-ounce package)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (4 ounces)
  • Shredded lettuce, as desired
  • Diced tomato, as desired


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Unroll dough; separate into 8 triangles. Place in an ungreased 9-inch square pan or 10-inch pie plate; press over bottom and up sides to form crust.

In a 10-inch skillet, cook the beef over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in the salsa and taco seasoning mix; simmer 5 minutes. Spoon the meat mixture in the crust-lined pan; sprinkle with cheese.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until the crust is deep golden brown and the cheese is melted. Serve topped with lettuce and tomato.
